By now, you must have seen photos of the famous blue gardens of Marrakesh. These are in fact the Jardin Majorelle. The gardens are very touristy and anything but peaceful, however, its electric blue colors and blue majorelle are worth the visit. The Jardin Majorelle is located in the modern neighborhood of Gueliz, easily reachable by taxi or on food following Avenue Moulay Abdallah. Upon the death of Majorelle, already a famous artist, the gardens were purchased by Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergรฉ. This is the reason you will now find a memorial to YSL and a museum featuring traditional North African tribal arms, jewels, and leathers. The entry cost to the garden is 50 Dinars, exclusive of the museum.
